After my ride to Labrador I need to buy new boots. They would leak after heavy day long rain
Canadian Sticker and US sticker shock was outrageous for new boots
My original Sidi DS boots bought in 2007 used on ADV Rider (size 47) Since then they have been everywhere and were recently resoled by the Sidi repair guy in California.
I wanted a pair of the newer version on my old boots and decided on the Sidi Adventure Gore Tex
550 US at Revzilla, special order in Canada and sidi had just had a price increase so the cdn dollar price was with tax about $1,000 cdn.
Note Sidi also makes a Dual Sport rain boot but ironically it is not really waterproof.
The boots I wanted were $325 US on ebay shipped (free shipping) from the Netherlands. Friends in the US had ordered from this firm so I went ahead and ordered the boots
They arrived in Blaine in 4 days , no US tax or duty and with the conversion they cost 426 cdn plus pst and gst at the border.
My old boots will not stand up to a day of solid rain but are too good to throw out and would last someone quite a few years.
They are size 47 (Men's 12.5) and they are free to anyone who wants them.
Send me a PM with your cell # and we can arrange a pick-up in North Van at the Edgemont Starbucks
